Composition is the act of writing or creating musical works. This option within the music degree program at UNH allows you to fully explore your musical interests while also pursuing a broad liberal arts education. You’ll study music theory and analysis, the history and literature of music, world music and technical skills such as ear training and piano, and compose and perform music. This Bachelor of Arts degree option also requires study of a foreign language.
As a music student at UNH, you’ll study composition with nationally and internationally known composition faculty. You’ll be able to participate in the university’s dynamic undergraduate research conference, which each spring highlights performances of student composers’ works. Our ensembles include touring chamber and choral groups, as well as orchestras and bands that inspire from the stage to the football field. You’ll also be able to engage with the community through our many outreach programs. Take advantage of an exchange program in Cardiff, Wales, or pair music with another major, such as math or business.
